Babygrow to the rescue: St John Ambulance team up with Tesco to teach baby CPR

We’ve joined forces with Tesco to help spread the little known, but incredibly important lesson of baby CPR to as many parents as possible.Baby grow

With the help of Humpty Dumpty, we’ve created a babygrow which provides all the life saving information you need to help you remember what to do, just in case an emergency should happen.

The joint venture builds on our Nursery Rhymes Inc. campaign that was developed after parents told us that their baby not breathing is the first aid emergency they fear the most, yet only one in four know what to do.

You can get your hands on a CPR babygrow from Tesco Direct. The full purchase price will be donated to St John Ambulance to help us continue our lifesaving work.

Update: we have now sold out of the CPR babygrows.

A baby CPR Story - Alex and Joel

Alex and Joel

Mum Alex McHugh, aged 33 from Wigan, saved her son Joel’s life after he stopped breathing at just seven weeks old when the family were getting into the car after the school run. Alex only knew what to do after she had seen a St John Ambulance baby CPR advert just a day prior to the incident.

The terrifying incident came after Joel was antenatally diagnosed with CCAM, (congenital cystic adenomatoid malformation) a foetal lung lesion which required surgery whilst Alex was still pregnant with Joel, and a high risk surgery at three days old to remove most of his left lung.

Alex is now encouraging others to save lives by backing the babygrow.

Alex said: ‘To have CPR advice on an everyday item like a babygrow will be so helpful to parents and will highlight the importance of learning baby first aid so they can be prepared in an emergency like I was. It’s every parent’s worst nightmare that their child will stop breathing and this easy to understand advice can be the difference between a life lost and a life saved.’
